Up for gongs at media night
REPORTERS, photographers, editors and producers from the NT News and Sky News have been named as finalists across eight categories in the upcoming NT Media Awards.
The NT News has been nominated in categories including best scoop, best print news coverage, feature writing, photography, online coverage, sports journalism and more.
Sky News Darwin correspondent and NT Weekend opinion writer Matt Cunningham was nominated in two award categories.
Crime and political reporting dominated the awards shortlist, released yesterday, in a year where community dissatisfaction at the state of the Northern Territory’s justice system featured prominently on the news agenda.
NT News editor Matt Williams said: “The number of reporters and photographers short-listed speaks to the quality of journalism and photography our team produces every day, reaching tens of thousands of Territorians both in print and online.”
The award winners will be announced at a gala ball at Sky City Casino on November 11.
The awards are judged by a panel of respected journalists and prominent Territorians, and are sponsored by the Darwin Press Club, the MEAA and the Walkley Foundation.
